Friday Blog Round Up

Ten A while back I reviewed Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes on Picture Book Thursday.  Recently on Read Roger, Roger Sutton blogged about his take on the book, and judging by the number of comments he's received, it seems to have struck a chord with readers.

Do you have a list of picture book titles you like to share with students but are still looking for good books to share with your own little ones?  Amy Borrell offers some of her favorites, directly off her 2-year-old daughter's bookshelf.

I've always enjoyed Captain Underpants author Dav Pilkey's quirky sense of humor, and he certainly ups the ante with the videos featured on his website.  Super Silly Streak, Super Diaper Baby Country Shuffle, and Calling Captain Underpants are just a few of the um . . .unique offerings.

It's not too late to hop on the Valentine's Day bandwagon and support a good cause at the same time.  Mo Willems, along with pals Brian Selznick, Kevin Henkes, LeUyen Pham, Marla Frazee, Ian Falconer and Rosemary Wells have created sets of nifty Valentines cards to benefit Save the Children

Don Tate brings us this worrisome news: "As an unintended consequence of too hastily passed legislation, (The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act or CPSIA), intended to protect children from lead covered toys, children's books have been thrown into the regulatory hopper."  Visit his website to read more on the subject and to see what readers have to say.

And with that my friends, you're free to go to your local bookstore to pick up a few of the newly awarded titles and hunker down for an enjoyable weekend.  I'll see you back here next week.
